Ebert review of the godfather makes us understand the connections between the movies characters and our family. In Ebert’s review he wrote “ We tend to identify with Don Corleone’s family not because we dig gang wars, but because we have been with them from the beginning, watching them wait for battle while sitting at the kitchen table and eating chow mein out of paper cartons”. Ebert makes this statement which indicates that most of us sit with our family at the dinner table we might not be preparing for war but we still enjoy the corleone’s sitting at the dinner table discussing whatever family problems they have to encounter. Ebert also goes on to give the characters a lot of credit for their hard work. Ebert said that the actors gave an example of “inspired acting” Eberts said those words to get us to understand the hard work these characters put in the movie and without them the movie would not have the same spark. In Ebert’s review he states “The Godfather’s role in the family enterprise is described by his name; he stands outside the next generation which will carry on and, hopefully, angle the family into legitimate enterprises”. In a family there’s the protector in the family that watches over the family, that can either be our fathers or mothers who are strong enough to guide us through life. This review attract many types of different audience who wants to get an opinion from a trusted source.
